"Panda-monium" is the eighth episode of Mickey Mouse.
Mickey attempts to photograph a bashful panda bear at the Beijing Zoo.
Mickey goes to the Beijing Zoo. In the zoo, he takes pictures of various animals. He comes across a baby panda, and is ready to take a photo of him. However, every time Mickey tries to take a picture of him, the panda's look changes. He imagines that his camera is broken. Then he throws it on his foot and screams, "OOH! OOH! OOH!" A monkey copies him, but says it 4 times. Mickey blows up a light bulb and lands on an elephant's head. Mickey tries to take the picture but gets thrown into a tree. Several monkeys chatter and Mickey runs up the tree with his camera. At the top of the tree, Mickey tries to take the picture, but a monkey ends up taking it. Mickey chases it and goes flying. He crashes into a vulture and feathers fall. They both hit the ground, and the baby panda runs away with the camera. Then Mickey says, "HEY!", chases him and ends up getting two black eyes. Mickey backs up into the mother panda. Thinking Mickey is a baby panda, she picks him up and puts a bonnet on him and a binky in his mouth. At this point, Mickey decides to give up and accepts his fate as a baby panda, not even attempting to escape the loving mothers tight grasp. The short ends with the baby panda taking a picture of Mickey being cradled lovingly in the mothers arms.

- In the Spanish dub, the vulture is incorrectly called a "dodo bird". This is because dodo birds in real life could not fly.
- Mickey's camera, Funyon, is an obvious parody of Canon.
- Unlike the other foreign language episodes:
- This one contains a line spoken in English. Mickey's camera slowly whispers "Help me".
- Also, English subtitles appear when the vulture says "I needed a haircut anyway" in Chinese. Mickey wasn't subtitled, though.
